My 1st Sketch


Now you going to have to be kind to me today because today over on Penny Black Saturday Challenge we are using my first ever sketch I've drawn. It's very basic  but I decided I did this on purpose so you add embellishment to suit your image, well thats my excuse and I'm sticking with it.
All I need to do now is work out how to do circles.
Anyway this sketch was born when I did the PB paper pieced fairy and truth be told it was because I had a couple of scraps to be used and thats how it worked out.
I'm going to really enjoy checking out what everyone makes with it.
So my card is using an old PB stamp, I actually call her my Susan Boyle stamp since I think she looks a bit like her. The paper pack is Kaiser and since she an older gal a bit of lace and pearls were the natural way to go.
The lovely Carole has donated a gorgeous PB stamp for a prize and since this is my sketch I will my utmost to check all the entries.
